    One good night”

    I stayed at Backpacker 41 in Taichung for one night in Feb 2018, in a dorm. All in all it was good. Not exceptional, but decent nonetheless. Reasonable price, comfy, good location. Room was a little noisy, mainly due to the humidifier, but little street noise. Separate floor-level shower cubicles and toilets, never had to queue. It's a big hostel, four floors of rooms, I'd guess about 100 beds total. I'd stay again.

    Here is close to Taichung station about 10minutes on foot. Also the famous spot "Miyahara" is near here. Staff can speak Chinese,English and Japanese fluently. The guest house mates were so noisy and there were many night persons so I could not sleep well but here was good guest house. They do not prepare towels and tooth brush so you have to bring it. I recomend here for backpackers.

    Good value for money”

    I only stayed here for one night but I will definitely stay again the next time that I visit Taichung. It has a very good location, close to the railway and bus stations, but it's a little tricky to find due to the sign being on the small side and blending in with the ones around it. Staff was helpful, and the rooms were nice and clean. The lack of some kind of screen/curtain around the bunks were very inconvenient though, if you want to stay up and read or sleep before the other occupants it's not possible to do so. The light showing the door's location also kept me up during the night because of that so I recommend bringing a sleep mask if you're sensitive to light. Showers are decently a sized stall but it's a little tricky maneuvering your towel and change of clothes without getting them wet. Overall though I highly recommend this hostel.

    Though agota supports didn't help me anything for my late check in request, the japanese receptionist waited for me in till 23 pm. It is difficult to find the place with the map of agota. The 7/ 11's stuff brought me to the hostel. The shower and toilets will be short when the hostel is full. The kitchen facilities is small and poor, it seems to me.

    Short and cold stay in Taichung”

    newness, location, kitchen area

    I feel like there should be towels available, at least for rent! It's a hassle when hostels offer no towels because if you shower in the morning, you can't wait for your own towels to dry before check-out and then you need to pack them away. The hostel worker told me to go to the nearest 7/11 to buy one. This seems to be a recurring theme in many Taiwanese hostels. The lounge area was a bit small for the amount of people that would sit around late at night. The dorm beds had no privacy curtains and looked a bit old-fashioned. Not a lot of places to hang clothes or towels in the shower area. Location within walking distance to the regular train station.

    Excellent”

    Nice place for stay but I think the hotel should separate between man and woman room floor, especially the shared bathroom. Just feel uncomfortable to share the toilet area together with men.

    Convenient”

    Great ambience at the common area. Beds lacked privacy but acceptable for the price. Very near to train station.

    Low price with high quality! The only short-coming is that there is no curtain for each bed ”

    It's really cheap. And the service is good, the environment is clean and the location is convenient. However, sometimes it gets noisy as eight persons are living in a room, and there are no curtains for each bed, which means there is little privacy. Still it's a very good shelter for travelers alone or young. Worth a try.
